Join Dame Judi Dench on a wild Borneo adventure at VIP film screening
Tickets are available for an exclusive premiere screening on June 21 at the Royal Geographical Society, raising money for South East Asia Rainforest Research Partnership’s groundbreaking conservation work in Sabah, Malaysia.
Due to reach our screens early July, Judi Dench’s new documentary will take her on a journey to uncover the lush rainforests, magical wildlife and spectacular coastline of Malaysian Borneo – and the threats which these species and habitats face. The film will feature Judi’s discussions with leading scientists from SEARRP who are working to protect some of the most biodiverse places on earth.
South East Asia Rainforest Research Partnership
Established by the Royal Society in 1985, SEARRP facilitates world-class scientific research that addresses the major environmental issues facing the tropics: plantation development, habitat restoration, and climate change. Working closely with international universities and local partners, SEARRP enable scientists to conduct essential research and large-scale ecological field experiments.
Dr Glen Reynolds, Director at SEARRP, adds: “This new documentary with Dame Judi provides an opportunity for us to showcase how, with our partners in Malaysia, we are working to study and protect rainforests and demonstrate the critical role they play in regulating the earth’s climate, maintaining biodiversity and supporting human livelihoods and wellbeing. The funds raised from this event will contribute to our key mission to train and mentor the next generation of scientists and conservation leaders.”
Sponsored by Rainforest Trust, the premiere screening will include a live Q&A with Judi Dench and the film’s executive producer Anthony Geffen. Tickets are available via this link and priced at £50 plus the opportunity to contribute to research as a donation, with all proceeds going to SEARRP.
